Can only bear to come on to the forum after 24 hours in recovery. I'm not going to read the previous 21 pages on this topic - it would probably depress me even further
Yes we did create some chances from open play, but we honestly deserved nothing from the game. Wycombe sat back in the second half and protected their 2 goal lead - successfully as it turned out. All of their goals were the result of poor defending. The midfield left a lot to be desired in creative terms. We resorted to hoofball in the second half. It would have been different if JC-H's shot had gone in instead of hitting the bar - but he was clearly offside anyway, so nothing to be too proud about.
I watched it all on Ifollow from abroad and we were better most of the game than Wycombe, creating far more clear cut chances than they did. It was just rank bad defending and I will say that Leahy was at fault for 2 of the goals. The third was definitely down to him, as he lost control on the edge of our box, to give the ball to Bloomfield to score and would have stopped the 1st goal if he knew how to tackle! If JCH hadn't missed the two chances that were easier to score and we had a least one of the penalties that that excuse for a refereee didn't give (I can say that as an ex-ref!!), we would have been at least level, if not ahead. Overall, I thought we were the better team, but it's results that count. The only thing I can take from yesterday is that we ARE showing signs of improvement.....more shots, more on target and more possesion which we weren't showing before. Abraham looked useful when he came on, but I'm looking forward more to seeing Daly. Let's hope he gets fit quick. Onwards to Tranmere on Tuesday!
The figures don't lie and are beyond dispute. His record as manager at Rovers is truly appalling.
The only real debate now is how long will he be given to turn things around. Some say go now. Some say 5 games. Others say end of season. In truth, I can understand and appreciate everybody's view. One thing for sure: the fans and club would have expected a win by now from whoever was appointed following GC's departure.
